When fishing Miami Lakes and Canals there is good opportunity for anglers to catch Peacock Bass, Largemouth bass and even several other species of fish. Miami Lakes and canal is based in Dade County and has many features, lakes, parks, as well as a picnic area that is equipped with very nice restroom facilities.
The fishery is made up a series of Lakes and Canals, the lakes, as well as the canal intersections and culverts, are generally productive areas for catching most species of fish. Shoreline vegetation, rip-rap areas, and shady areas associated with bridges and culverts also provide excellent places to fish. Miami lakes are what is called the "Falls" is about 32 miles of lakes and canals connected to other lakes by a canal system. Aquatic vegetation consists of cattail, spatterdock, and hydrilla. The fish are attracted by the large amounts of bait in the system.
The Aerojet canal located in Homestead just minutes from the Florida Keys. You fish a casting distance from Saltwater all while enjoying the catches only provided by freshwater. Because of its place it gets very low pressure and in return grows really big BASS, a few of the side benefits of being located so far south is the capabilities to grow and keep up PEACOCK BASS in the same fishery. Aerojet canal is never noisy and congested Aerojet Canal like some commercial, maybe a few extra anglers on the weekends. Traveling from the boat ramp, it doesn't look like must. But like most canals, this one especially it has its SWEET spots that always seem to hold fish. With that said, this place has a lot and is generally productive for most anglers with a little knowledge of the area. The entrance off the road of US1 is a bit difficult to see and access, especially with weekend traffic. The Aerojet canal is a flood control and has a structure on both ends. It fishes like a combination of Tamiami and Snapper Creek canal systems all while providing urban anglers more exciting fishing opportunities. Peacock Bass Fishing Aerojet Canal offers some of the most exciting and varied canal fishing in all of southeast Florida. Several anglers have reported canal ‘trifecta’ or ‘grand slam’ catches of butterfly peacock and largemouth bass topped-off with a Snook.
Our native fishing guides have the local knowledge and service is second to none, just like our boats, rods & reels and tackle that you will be using. We guarantee it with our NO FISH, NO PAY policy! [READ MORE...]or reserve by clicking button below...

Thanks again Capt. Kirk. See you next year!!”
“This was a guys trip that had one intention, catch peacock bass. Captain Robert Miley had us on the fish within our first hour on the water. I'd say between the 3 guys on this trip, we reeled in about +40 on a half-day trip, averaging about 2 lbs with the larger ones ranging in the 3 lbs. Bad weather rolled in, Captain Miley busted out the rain suits and we kept fishing! We were very impressed and satisfied with him as a guide and I learned a lot just listening to him, very humble fellow with a tremendous amount of fishing knowledge. Guaranteed we will go with him again, and again.”
